Site History

This site got it's start in 1998 at Geocities as a list of some of my favorite pages. I eventually started creating my own content. I finally got my own domain on 11/21/09 after 11 years at Geocities. Sadly the initial transition reduced traffic by 74% but it slowly recovered although is was like basically starting from scratch. Part of the traffic wass due to Yahoo... I thought they would redirect all my subpages to the new domain but instead they have redirected them all to the main page. So much for an "upgrade".
